Khan Academy Project

For the summer of 2014 I worked as an intern to Prof. Balkcom at Dartmouth College on a number of animations in Processing (in Javascript).

Amongst these was an animation of Towers of Hanoi to teach Khan Accademy students recursion. The animation ended up on Khan Accademy, as is shown to the left. You can check it out here.

I also worked on a simulation of the Quick Sort algorithm. This animation did not make it onto the Khan Accademy website, but it was a good project regardless. This animation is previewed to the right. In addition I wrote a simple sprite library in JS and Processing that I used for many of these animations.
